MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Cervical cancer is one of the most preventable types of cancer with regular testing and is highly curable when found early. You can take action to avoid exposure to HPV, or human papillomavirus virus, the most common cause of cervical cancer by limiting the number of people you have sex with, avoiding sex partners who engage in high risk activities, delaying sex until you're older, and using condoms to help prevent the spread of HPV and other sexually transmitted diseases. Avoid smoking, which increases the risk of cervical cancer in women infected with HPV. Get vaccinated with Gardasil, which prevents infection with the two types of HPV responsible for most cases of cervical cancer. Get annual pap tests, which look for precancerous changes on the cervix that might develop into cervical cancer if not treated in time. Get the HPV test, which tests for HPV in the cervix. Be sure and talk to your doctor about ways to reduce your risk of cervical cancer.
